TAA Tools

The Compare  System Reply  List Entries  command compares two  versions
of the  RPYLSTP file output by  CVTRPYLE.  This may be  used to compare
against  a previous  version on the  same system or  to compare against
the output from two different systems.

Assume you want  to compare the system  reply lists from two  different
systems.  On each system you would enter the command:

              CVTRPYLE    OUTLIB(xxx)

You would then  transfer the RPYLSTP file from one  system to the other
(different libraries must be used) and compare:

              CMPRPYLE    FROMLIB(xxx) TOLIB(yyy)

A listing would be displayed of any differences.

You  can  output the  CVTRPYLE  command to  a different  member  in the
RPYLSTP  file  on  regular  basis  (such  as  monthly)  by   using  the
OUTMBR(*DATE) function and then make a comparison such as:

                            FROMMBR(*FIRST) TOMBR(*LAST)

CMPRPYLE escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

CMPRPYLE Command parameters                           *CMD

   FROMLIB       The  From  library  containing  the  CVTRPYLE  outfile

   TOLIB         The   To  library  containing   the  CVTRPYLE  outfile

   FROMMBR       The member of  the RPYLSTP  file in  the From  library
                 to compare from.  *FIRST is the default.

   TOMBR         The member of  the RPYLSTP file  in the To  library to
                 compare to.  *FIRST is the default.

   DIFFONLY      A  *YES/*NO parameter  to describe  whether  all reply
                 list   entries  or  only  the  differences  should  be

                 *YES is the default to list only differences.

                 *NO may be specified  to list all reply  list entries.

   OUTPUT        How  to output  the  results.   *  is  the default  to
                 display  the spooled  file if  the command  is entered
                 interactively.  The spooled  file is deleted after  it
                 is displayed.

                 If  the  command is  entered  in  batch or  *PRINT  is
                 specified,  the spooled  file is output  and retained.
